Glass Futures was created by industry and its supply chain to provide innovation services to its members and wider industries

Our growing membership spans global glass manufacturers and industry, societies and academics with collaboration at its heart to drive positive change and sustainability.

We enable our members by creating projects that allow innovation and transformation to ensure glass (and other foundation materials) continue to play a vital role in everyday life.

We know experimenting during production is risky and expensive, our consortium working groups accelerate research efforts towards a sustainable future, reducing risk and cost to individual members.

Our three levels of membership operate on a credit system which can be used to input into our technical projects that will take place on our 30 tonnes a day pilot line in our Global Centre of Excellence. This can include, but not limited to - raw materials, composition and batch, batch charging and pattern control, and fuel and combustion.

Other benefits include access to a global membership network, technical workshops and the ability to demonstrate technology. Find out more and join the collaboration.
